The plan to clean out our closets this weekend was a success. I can’t believe how nice it looks and easier it is to find a particular item.
We got to the task first thing Saturday morning. Mr. Boomer and I tackled it together section by section. He would unload each area and every item went into one of three places: donate, trash or back in the closet.
I was ruthless even when it came to my shoes. I probably still have more pairs than needed, but only kept those I actually wear.
Before you knew it, the entire closet was done. In less than two hours we had transformed an overcrowded, disorganized closet. That’s when the lesson hit me.
Putting off something that needs to be done usually results in the job becoming bigger in one’s mind. I had blown up this chore into a huge ordeal. Procrastination had gotten the better of me once again.
Having that charity truck scheduled broke the impasse and spurred
us me into action. Yesterday, the truck arrived and was quickly loaded with a bed, dresser, TV, and a dozen bags of donated items. We received a receipt for tax purposes. Both parties were happy and my house feels lighter!
Do you have any tips for overcoming procrastination?
